If the flash does not complete successfully, there are two possible outcomes:

  • A “soft-brick” occurs when there is a failure in the USB connection. In most cases, flashing the firmware again fixes the problem.
  • A “hard-brick” occurs when the wrong firmware is used to flash the device. The problem usually involves the bootloaders. A “hard-brick” may require returning the device to Samsung for repair.
  • When the device fails to connect to a cellular network, it is an indication that the firmware did not match the communication protocols used by the cellular network to which it is connected. You need to go back and choose the correct firmware.
